about

After the turmoil following the collapse of Soviet power, post-Communist Russia has emerged as an assertively independent force in international affairs. Meanwhile, an intense debate has been underway in Moscow about Russia's national interests and foreign policy priorities. Domestic politicalconflicts and the close ties with former Soviet partner states have made internal factors particularly particularly important in shaping Russian foreign policy. Internal Factors in Russian Foreign Policy is the first systematic analysis of the domestic political forces which condition the international behaviour of the new Russian state. Four leading specialists examine in turn the areas of foreign policy thinking and debate, how policy is made, thepublic politics of foreign policy and the role of the military. They explore the changing domestic alignments associated with recent shifts in Russian foreign policy, focusing on the roles played by institutions such as the Security Council and the legislature, by military groupings and by emergingeconomic interests. The authors throw new light on the domestic foundations of Moscow's more assertive and sef-reliant stance.
Neil Malcolm is a Professor of Russian Politics and Head of the Russian and East European Research Centre at University of Wolverhampton. Alex Pravda is a Fellow of St Antony's College and Lecturer in Soviet and East European Politics at the University of Oxford. Roy Allison is at the Royal Institute of International Affairs.

From Our Editors

This book is the first to analyse systematically the internal political forces which condition Russia's international behaviour. Four leading specialists examine in turn the areas of foreign policy thinking and debate, how policy is made, the public politics of foreign policy and the role of the military. Their analyses explore the changing domestic alignments associated with recent shifts in Russian foreign policy, focusing on the roles played by institutions such as the Security Council and the legislature, by military groupings and by emerging economic interests. The book throws new light on the domestic foundations of Moscow's more assertive and self-reliant stance.

Editorial Reviews

`useful background information...the volume clearly shows how changing institutional features, instrumental and bureaucratic politics, and power struggles at the domestic level are very significant forces in influencing the direction of foreign policy. This book offers an impressivleydetailed empirical analysis that traces the domestic roots of foreign policy during these important formative years. The volume can be highly recommended.'Peter Shearman. Australian Journal of Political Science. 1998.
